When Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant owner Scott Van Nuzer in Fort Pierce, Florida bear-hugged President Obama and picked him up off the ground, it created one of the more photographic moments from this week on the campaign trail. This being an election year, there was an immediate backlash on Yelp with multiple one-star reviews based solely on this incident and not on the quality of the restaurant.

“Talk about committing business suicide,” wrote Greg S., Cottonwood, Arizona. “After picking up Obama, your books are gonna be in the red pretty soon. Not too smart.”

There were, however, some people who came out in support of the gesture. “Pizza is awesome, New York pizza is the best in the world, and if this place sells “Big Apple” pizza it must be worth a visit,” wrote ‘Conscientious S.’ from Oakland, California. “This review brought to you by a political independent who thinks it’s wrong to vote down a business you’ve never visited just because the owner was hospitable to the President of the United States.”
